The Last Hurrah at Town Hall
A century ago, First Hill’s historic Town Hall served as a place of worship. In the 1990s, it became one of Seattle’s most beloved establishments for artistic, political, and cultural discourse. But the historic landmark's aging skeleton is in need of a well-deserved rest. Town Hall’s Last Hurrah features food trucks, photo booths, drinks, dance performances, poetry, and live music featuring hits from the '70s onward. Don’t worry, this goodbye is temporary: While the building undergoes a makeover, Town Hall brings its 2017–18 season to various venues throughout Seattle. Town Hall, Free
